I am a Veterinary receptionist/office Mgr. I have studied several diets in the last 34 years. My first set of huskies lived to be 17 & 18. Our current set is 13 1/2 & 15. This diet is a tribute to the longevity of their lives.
My German shepherd mix would always refuse to eat his dog food. I had tried multiple different kinds of dog food and he always seemed uninterested. I started to get desperate considering he was losing weight due to him never wanting to eat his food. Did some research and saw this kind was a good brand for picky dogs and decided to give it a shot. Now every time I bring a bag home he gets excited and eats every last bit of it! The only con I could see with this is that it can be a little bit more pricey than some of the other brands of dogs. Definitely love this brand of dog food tho!
Got this as a sample from a petco meet & greet. My dogs loved it and then wouldn't eat anything else.

RECOMMENDED DAILY FEEDING AMOUNTS*
*Using a standard 8 oz/250 ml measuring cup which contains approximately 96 g of Pro Plan.
We recommend that you keep your dog in ideal body condition and not allow your dog to become overweight. The exact amount of food your dog requires will need to be adjusted according to age, activity and environment. But a good place to start is with these guidelines for an average, active, adult dog fed once daily.
FEEDING WEANING PUPS
Start puppies on dry or moistened Pro Plan as early as they begin to nibble at solid foods, generally 3 - 4 weeks of age.
FEEDING GROWING PUPS
Feed pups (to six months of age) all of the moistened Pro Plan they will consume at intervals throughout the day. If fed dry, Pro Plan may be kept before pups at all times.
FEEDING FOR REPRODUCTION
Pro Plan provides the extra nutrition needed by reproducing females in stages of gestation and lactation. Food consumption may vary during gestation, so feed the amount needed to maintain the pregnant female's ideal body condition. Food intake may double or even quadruple during lactation.
MAKING THE SWITCH TO PRO PLAN
Although you'll be anxious to see the difference Pro Plan can make in your dog, please allow 7 - 10 days to ease the transition from your dog’s current food. Each day, simply feed a little less of the previous food and a little more Pro Plan until you're feeding Pro Plan exclusively. This gradual transition will help avoid dietary upsets.
Provide adequate fresh water in a clean container daily.
For your pet's health, see your veterinarian regularly.
